## BOUNDARY-INTEGRAL METHODS FOR ITERATIVE SOLUTION OF SCATTERING PROBLEMS WITH VARIABLE IMPEDANCE SURFACE CONDITIONBy F. Collino, F. Millot, and S. Pernet
Abstract:
We present an efficient boundary element method to solve electromagnetic scattering problems relative to an impedance boundary condition on an obstacle of arbitrary shape in the frequency domain. In particular, the technique is based on a Combined Field Integral Equation (CFIE) and is well adapted to treat the partially coated objects. Some methods are then proposed in order to eliminate the magnetic current and to treat correctly the rotation operator n × · (where n is the unit outward normal). After discretization, the final system is solved by an iterative method coupled with the Fast Multipole Method (FMM). Finally, a numerical comparison with a well-tried method to solve this kind of problem proves that we have proposed an attractive technique in terms of memory storage and CPU time.
